In dental practice there has yet been another breakthrough, and its name is Invisalign. Invisalign is a set of aligners that functionas dental braces. The wonderful thing about Invisalign is the fact that they are clear and very aesthetically pleasing. Their function is to keep pressure on your teeth so that they can align themselves properly and get straighter over time. Drs. Montgomery & Kiriak, APC is one of the leading invisalign providers in Mission Viejo, CA. Invisalign braces have to be changed every two weeks. You are required to wear the braces for 22 hours each day except for when eating or brushing your teeth. Invisalign is manufactured via a very high tech process in which a plastic model of a person’s entire teeth structure is made individually. Every two weeks when you get another Invisalign you will notice a change in the brace and your teeth structure. After the plastic model is made then comes the aligning process in which aligners are individually made for each teeth and then combined. The manufacturing process is quite breathtaking and this option is surely a viable one, way better than standard dental braces. Plus at Drs. Montgomery & Kiriak, APC our expert Invisalign dentist will take you through the treatment so that you know what is going on.

The Treatment Process for Invisalign

Our Mission Viejo orthodontist has the perfect Invisalign plan designed to make your teeth straighter and your smile more beautiful than ever. Let’s go through the treatment process first. Before the implementation of the Invisalign treatment plan, our Invisalign dentist will first set out to take an exact impression of your teeth. This is to ascertain whether or not your teeth can be straightened using Invisalign. Once our orthodontists give the greenlight, our state-of-the-art 3D modeling system will create the treatment plan for you. Our Invisalign system indicates the consistent movements of your teeth. The movements are then projected over a period of time so that you can get a look at how your teeth are going to look when the treatment is over. Upon the start of your Invisalign treatment you will be given a customized pair of aligners for your teeth to wear for two weeks. Surely but gradually your teeth will begin to move towards the position shown to you in the projection. During your treatments you will have to visit your invisalign dentist for routine checkups so that the orthodontist can monitor how you’re doing. The completion time for the invisalign varies from patient to patient. It also significantly depends on the patient’s dental structure. That is why it is imperative that you contact us and schedule an appointment with one of our expert orthodontists. Our dentist will explain the suitability and the application of invisalign for complex cases to you so that you do not get confused.

Invisalign vs. Braces

Treatment Comparison

After you go through the treatment comparison mentioned here the difference will be clear to you. When it comes to straitening your teeth, the preferred way is invisalign treatment. Only invisalign provides fast results through a clinical innovation that allows dentists to control the alignment of your teeth. Here’s why invisalign is way better than traditional dental braces.

Technological Innovation

Why would you go for traditional dental braces when you can get invisalign that is a hundred times more aesthetically pleasing? Applying today’s technology our dentists can now create invisible braces that align your teeth faster than metallic dental braces. Secondly there are no wires or any sort of metal in invisalign.

The Convenience of Taking them Off or Putting them On

Remember that traditional dental braces can only be set in and taken out by professional dentists. It is a onetime procedure and takes considerably long to straighten your teeth. Moreover, due to the metallic nature of traditional braces you will have to re-consider your eating habits. Here is where invisalign trumps metal braces. With invisalign you can take your braces out and put them back in at will. If you decide you want to eat something chewy you can just slide the braces out of your mouth and then put it back in when done.

Improve Oral Health, Without Anyone Knowing How

You can also improve and maintain your oral health by frequently washing your mouth, flossing or brushing by removing the braces. Traditional braces can only be taken out by professionals and you cannot maintain your oral hygiene with them. Plus you’ll try to suppress your perfect smile due to the bad look of metal braces further frustrating yourself. With invisalign people hardly notice that you have braces on.

Treat Numerous Dental Conditions

Furthermore, invisalign can be used to effectively treat a wide variety of dental cases such as tooth spacing, underbite, overbite, crowding and spacing. Traditional braces are also used to treat all the mentioned cases and better yet invisalign costs the same as dental braces. But the convenience and ease outmatches and outperforms dental braces in every way. But then again it is also a matter of personal preference. At Drs. Montgomery & Kiriak, APC we give our patients what they desire, we can only explain and suggest the best treatments but in the end it is you who decides. But it is safe to say that a majority of people who come to us get their teeth fixed and properly aligned through invisalign treatment. It is a much quicker and easier way to straighten your teeth. We have your best interest at heart; we always look forward to our patient’s wellbeing and their happiness when they get the freedom to smile confidently.
